An essential anti-phishing desk reference for anyone with an email address, Phishing Dark Waters addresses the growing and continuing scourge of phishing emails, and provides actionable defensive techniques and tools to help you steer clear of malicious emails. Phishing is analyzed from the viewpoint of human decision-making and the impact of deliberate influence and manipulation on the recipient. With expert guidance, this book provides insight into the financial, corporate espionage, nation state, and identity theft goals of the attackers, and teaches you how to spot a spoofed email or cloned website. Included are detailed examples of high profile breaches at Target, RSA, Coca Cola, and the AP, as well as an examination of sample scams including the Nigerian 419, financial themes, and post high-profile event attacks. Learn how to protect yourself and your organization using anti-phishing tools, and how to create your own phish to use as part of a security awareness program.

Phishing is a social engineering technique through email that deceives users into taking an action that is not in their best interest, but usually with the goal of disclosing information or installing malware on the victim's computer. Phishing Dark Waters explains the phishing process and techniques, and the defenses available to keep scammers at bay.

Recognize different types of phish, and know what to do when you catch one

Use phishing as part of your security awareness program for heightened protection Attempts to deal with the growing number of phishing incidents include legislation, user training, public awareness, and technical security, but phishing still exploits the natural way humans respond to certain situations. Phishing Dark Waters is an indispensable guide to recognizing and blocking the phish, keeping you, your organization, and your finances safe.

Excellent book but more narrow than I needed

I purchased this book because I’m a security manager and I need to create a comprehensive anti-phishing program for my company. This book did an excellent job describing the people part of the program I need to create. But it did not give me enough information about the anti-phishing technologies and protocols, such as sender policy framework and DMARC. Nevertheless I’m going to use all the information provided. Thank you.

Highly recommended

This audio book is a must read (hear) for all people both IT and the "everyday" computer user. This is a engaging and easy to understand book that is important for people to take seriously with the growing threat of hacking.

Having been a IT professional for over 16 years, this book was filled with an amazing amount of information.
